Kendrick Perkins responds to Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green’s trolling on Twitter with some NBA facts
Could we actually be seeing some beef develop between Kendrick Perkins and Draymond Green?
The Warriors star was an important part of Team USA during the Olympics and won gold by the end of the tournament. And, as has become tradition by now, every time the player wins something, he chooses to call out somebody opposing to him. And this time, it was Kendrick Perkins.
The cause? The analyst had posted on Twitter that international players are taking over basketball. And like many of the more extreme fans on the platform, the player responded strongly, with this tweet.

Unlike what Green would have liked to believe though, it wasn’t over there. After all, you don’t mess with THE Big Perk and come away unscathed.
Let’s get into it.
“You can’t outslick the slickster Draymond Green!”: Kendrick Perkins issues scathing response to Draymond Green
Having beef and arguments with analysts is nothing new to Draymond Green. In fact, it’s more like a regular occurrence for him. But, what’s different here is, unlike those other times, it’s Draymond Green who’s in the wrong here.
Yeah, we said it, because it’s true. Before we go further though, here is Big Perk’s response.
Last 3 MVPs… International. Last 4 DPOYs… International.
Last Finals MVP… International.

He even went a step further and said this.
Imagine winning a Gold Medal for your country and the first name you UTTER walking to the Locker room is KENDRICK PERKINS. WOW! I appreciate it fellas and Congrats on winning the Gold! Carry the hell on…

The take indeed was that international players are starting to take over the sport. Now, while we don’t think the international world is dominating just yet, we do believe they are inching closer to it.
At the end of the day, the facts that KP put out for the world to see in that tweet count for something. Those are the most prestigious awards in the NBA. And all of them have most recently been won by international players.
They may not have taken over yet. However, if USA isn’t careful, that day really isn’t that far away.
